This is what we call a "whole in the wall" back east. About 4-5 men can fit inside. The line ended up on reaching the sidewalk. All sandwiches are $6 or less. I think this and the bread are probably reasons why this place has so many rave reviews on other rating sites. My biggest issue with this spot is... More

Sandwiches are awesome and cheap. Friendly service every time I go in. It is a cash only and the hours are quick.

Great breakfast sandwiches with choice of egg, cheese and meat. We also ordered the breakfast burrito but was unable to eat both. Very large!

Best sandwich I have ever tried. The owners are very friendly and nice too. The sandwiches are very filling and gourmet. Randy has been an owner and a gourmet chef for his 5 star restaurant in Santa Cruz and now he is the best sandwich maker in town. Love it and I visit this place every year with my family!!... More

Randy's Sandwich Shop is not easy to find for a tourist, but I managed. It is a breakfast and lunchtime only, and cash only little family business. Sandwiches are excellent. I had a Reuben for lunch and liked it so much that I bought another cold cut sandwich to save for later.

Randy's is a hole-in-the-wall, with no atmosphere worth mentioning. You stand in line, order a sandwich, pay and go. What makes it special is the size of the sandwich, it's very good quality and the consistently low cost. Call them hoagies, grinders, subs or whatever. And if you think you've gone to the right place but can't find them, you're... More

If you want a great sandwich, local or tourist, find Randy's and enjoy. No seating, so it is all take out or there is a bench across the street. If they don't have it on the menu, they will try to make it for you. Real good.

Mmmmmm, quick turn around and packed full of delicious meat and cheese. The bread was a sesame hoagie that was delicious. CASH only, but it's soooo cheap! How can they survive? Thank you, Randy's for being awesome!

Wow is the word! Little dive but awesome sandwich's. Go in and order and before we finished paying they were ready. No seating in this 'tiny' little place but there was a picnic table across the street or adventure to your favorite place. We sat at picnic table and WOW cars were flying in and out of this place. We... More
